The Bajan singer is known for her unapologetic style and bold looks. Rihanna always looks great whether she’s hitting the red carpet or making an appearance to meet fans. Always one to switch it up, you never know if she’s going to give you a bold red lip or a soft, natural face. If you’ve ever wanted to try a smoky eye without it being too severe, take note from the Rated R diva. Here, she rocks a smoky eye soft enough for the day and sultry enough for the night. Here’s how to achieve a similar look:

Rihanna is known for her bold looks and flawless make up. For a smooth, matte face use a powder like Nars Powder Foundation. To add a touch of color on the cheeks, use a cream blush. Revlon Cream Blush in Rosy Glow is a great product that blends perfectly with a powder foundation.

Every girl has wanted to rock the smoky eye look at least once. Contrary to belief, the smoky eye doesn’t always have to be black. Take note from the “Rude Boy” singer. She achieves the smoky eye look with a shimmery gray eye shadow. Tarte Cosmetics “Luuucy, I’m Home” eye shadow is the perfect shade of dark gray with just a hint of blue to create an awesome smoky eye. To finish the look, line eyes with Lancome Le Crayon Kohl in Black Ebony.

Since the focus and emphasis are on the eyes, the color on the lips should be light. A color like IMAN Luxury Lip Shimmer Gloss in Blushing Nude is a good way to round up the look. Heavy color on eyes AND lips is a no-no. By keeping your lips light in color, the first thing people will look at is your eyes. And now, anyone who was afraid of the smoky eye look because it was too dark, can rock the look and be as bold as Rihanna.
